Schroeder can play

Perhaps Schroeder should consider playing a different position. Catching can be murder on the fingers.

Where Are You Baseball

Here’s an amusing short parody of Faith Hill’s “Where Are You Christmas.” This gal, username Hey Sara, has an awesome voice and appears to have a few other videos on YouTube featuring her singing. The lyrics of this short tune align with what many MLB fans are thinking and feeling these days.


“They Are the Oakland A’s,” The Baseball Project

This song mentions everything from Connie Mack to Moneyball. It’s fun and catchy, just as so many Baseball Project tunes are. Enjoy!


Go Get ’em Tigers

Here is the theme song for the Detroit Tigers from 1968. It’s short and sweet, but very catchy. The creator of the video also inlcuded a bit of Tigers history into the video, including images of the team’s logos over the years, ballparks where the Tigers played, and championship teams.


“Lets Go, Go Go White Sox”

I’m not a White Sox fan, but I admit I was lowkey hoping they’d at least advance to the ALCS, if only so that I could post this without it seeming awkward. But I also know that if I wait until after the end of the season, I run the risk of forgetting about this altogether, so here’s the White Sox fight song performed by Captain Stubby and the Buccaneers.

This song first appeared in 1959 during the White Sox’s run for the AL pennant, which was the team’s first league championship since the Black Sox Scandal of 1919. The song re-emerged and regained popularity in 2005, the year that the Sox swept the Astros in four games in the World Series.


“Vida Blue,” Albert Jones

Vida Blue was a left-handed pitcher who is primarily known as a vital member of the Oakland Athletics dynasty that won three consecutive World Series championships from 1972 to 1974. Blue won the American League Cy Young Award and Most Valuable Player Award in 1971, and he was the first pitcher ever to  start the All-Star Game for both the American League (1971) and the National League (1978).

This tribute by Albert Jones was released in 1971.


“We’re Gonna Win Twins”

The song itself is almost as cheesy as the video, but I suppose for hardcore Twins fans, this might be one of the best tunes out there.


Quote of the day

It’s like baseball. Life is like baseball. Before you can ever get a hit, you’ve got to step up to the plate. When you step up to the plate you’ve got to swing … And you keep swinging.

“Indians Baseball Song,” Sammy Watkins and his Orchestra

According to the description for this video, this song was transferred from a 45 RPM record from the 1960s. Listening to it certainly makes me feel like I’ve stepped back in time. I get this mental image of men in colorful jackets and women in knee-length skirts walking excitedly towards Cleveland Stadium.


“Yogi Berra,” The Grandsons

This song is wonderfully lively and energizing, which seems appropriate given the subject of the song. Listening to this a few times has been a fun way to start out the day.
